I have a very, very important question for you, Mr or Mrs Map Maker …
How long does it take for a new road network to be charted on a map?
The planning has begun in earnest (we’re a bit behind schedule this year) for our Bronze DofE expedition. The area that we use has been the subject of massive upheaval through roadworks, re-routing and building, and our paper maps are a bit in need of updating. I’ve been hoping that the new roads would appear in time for our expedition but so far they’re not there.
This 1:50000 online screenshot (thanks OS) shows roughly where a part of the road now runs but we need loads more detail than the 1:25000 is giving us.
So … when will we get new information? Should you need two very willing volunteers to help you with this mission, please feel free to call on the Two Blondes!
